Goose Island challenges “armchair kickers” to kick field goal for free beer

Goose Island Bears Kicker

If you don’t watch sports, you’ve at least heard of the epic last-second field goal miss by Cody Parkey of the Chicago Bears on Sunday – now dubbed “Doink, Doink.” (Watch the kick and see why.)

Bears fans were less than forgiving. Parkey was booed off the field and was met with some pretty heavy social media vitriol and death threats.

Goose Island Beer Co. is doubling down on their backing of the kicker, who incidentally scored more points than the entire Bears offense, by the way. In a series of tweets, the folks at Goose called out the “armchair kickers” of the world for destroying Parkey. The brewery is even going as far as building a field goal post out front of their Chicago production facility, offering free beer for a year to anyone that can kick a 43-year field goal.

The event takes place on January 12th. The brewery has posted a set of rules you’ll find below.

Guess it’s time for Chicago Bears fans put their kicking foot where their Twitter handle is.
